We are excited you are considering consulting as your future career.

Business analysts play an active role in many aspects of client engagements, including fact gathering, analysis, client communications, making recommendations, and implementation. You will collaborate with senior consultants, client managers, and executives on every part of the consulting process, from brainstorming ideas to working side-by-side with clients to implement team recommendations.

Women as Future Leaders - Journey Line Workshop


When we think of leadership we often focus on what external characteristics exemplary leaders demonstrate, although we won’t reach our potential as leaders by looking only at achievements. We need to see what’s underneath to understand how we have overcome challenges and when we are the best version of ourselves. This workshop will help you to reflect on your own experiences and evaluate some of your strengths.

This event will take place at 6.00pm on Tuesday 24th October 2017. It is open to current students (bachelors, masters, PhDs) of any degree discipline. The deadline for applications is 9am on Tuesday 17th October 2017.

Opportunities for Undergraduate Degree Candidates

Undergraduates typically join us as business analysts or fellows as an integral part of our client service teams. Some stay for 2 or 3 years before attending graduate school or gaining further work experience, others stay on and move directly into a post-graduate school role.

Our roles include generalist consulting; practice consulting, focused on a specific function or industry (e.g., digital, implementation, operations); and New Ventures product and solution development (e.g., software engineering, data science, solution expert consulting, data engineering).
